Ontario's legal battle against the federal Liberal government's controversial carbon tax is expected to be heard Monday in the province's top court.

Premier Doug Ford's government will make its case in the Court of Appeal for Ontario this morning to a five-judge panel.

Attorney General Caroline Mulroney is arguing that Ottawa's new national carbon pricing plan, or the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, is unconstitutional.
